Heartburn or GERD can Kill

Heartburn is a common annoyance. The busy lifestyle, quick meals, fatty or spicy foods all contribute to the occasional need of a chewable pain reliever. The acceptance of heartburn as an inconvenient, but natural, part of the daily grind can blind you to the warning that a severe heartburn symptom can bring.

Heartburn as a Disorder

Heartburn can be a symptom as well as a disorder. Simple heartburn or GERD can be controlled and dealt with. However, heartburn can signal the presence of a much more serious problem. If it’s heartburn, you will have a burning sensation in the chest usually after eating. There may be a spread of the burning to the throat, sometimes accompanied by a bad taste, difficulty in swallowing, belching, coughing, hoarseness and/or wheezing.

It can become worse by lying down or bending over or by eating. Relief can come from an antacid. While the more severe heartburn symptoms may be mistaken for a heart attack, simple heartburn is usually not made worse by exercise. If there is any concern that the pain may signal a heart attack, get help quickly.

Acai Berry Pills and Powders

By Dana Hawkes

The acai berry diet has one central goal; to get acai into your body. There are different ways to actually get the acai berry into the system to allow the diet to work. While many attempt to get the acai through juices, most are left looking for a less expensive and more realistic option. This is where acai berry diet supplements come into play.

Acai pills are a good way to get a full serving of acai in one simple step. The acai pills are simply pure dried acai berry in a pill capsule. This helps to get a large amount of the acai at once. Often, acai berry diets call for large amounts of the acai itself. This is a simple way to make the diet easy.

Other pills feature the acai berry, as well as other ingredients, to make a multivitamin pill. This can be great for those who want to make sure that they are getting more than just the acai berry. Multivitamin pills are still healthy. They may not feature the full amount of acai you need. Be sure to get the acai from another source; taking multiple acai multivitamin pills may be harmful.

Acai powder is a newer form of acai supplement that is proving beneficial for acai berry dieters. The acai powder allows you to place the acai in foods and beverages. While the taste is still imparted, you can mix it with virtually anything. As long as it tastes good, the acai powder will work.

There are various types of acai supplements out there. Each and every acai berry diet company will have their own form of these supplements. Do your research and ask the right questions to understand which company will give you what you need for a successful acai berry diet.
